ON THE DOME LIGHT : you will test if the light is ok by turning the dimer for the dash light all the way up until it clicks, if the light come on, then this mean the fuse the circuit and the bulb are ok. also try by opening other doors, if the light come on by opening other door that means than the switch at that specific door is not good, if nothing of this work check all the fuses and make sure they are ok, specially the lighter fuse.

and on the unlucking doors make sure to check for a previous aftermarket alarm in your car, most of the times you wil see a little red light blinking, or have some one with little knowledge to tell you if the car does have one, and have it remove, this might be unlucking the door when you don't want to

Is there a fuse for remote entry system on a 2000 taurus


There are fuse's for the module that controls the keyless entry . If fuse's were the problem you would have a lot more problems then just keyless entry . Have you tried replacing the battery in the key fob. There are also relay's , door unlock an door lock relays , located in the central junction box . Under the dash some place . There are controlled by the GEM - genaric electronic module . Ford's BCM - body control module .

I have a 1995 F350 crew cab with keyless entry and the dome lights controlled by...


There are two jam switches located on the latch assymbly. One on top and one at the bottom. They can become dirty and not function properly causing the dome light to stay on until it "times" out. They can be removed and cleaned so they don't stick. Once I found them, it took me about an hour to completely remove the door panel, latch assymbly, and to reinstall everything back.

How can i know if my ford taurus wagon 1996 has keyless entry or remote control from factory, when i bought it didn't come with it, but it has power lock


To figure out if you have factory keyless entry,place the key in the ignition and turn it foreward 5 times in 10 seconds. This means forward just till the dash lights come on, but do not start it. If the doors lock and then unlock, you've entered programming mode and you have a factory system. You'll need to get on line and purchase a factory remote, (I didn't see any on Ebay) and following this guude:

- Cycle ignition from OFF to RUN 5 times within 10 seconds, ending in RUN. (this may take 8 times)
- All doors will lock then unlock to confirm programming mode.
- Press any button on 1st transmitter.
- Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.
- Press any button on 2nd transmitter (up to 4 transmitters total possible).
- Turn ignition to OFF.
- Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

Hope this helps.

2001 Ford Excursion door locks will not unlock or lock.


Unfortunately the actuators are bad. You could try removing the door panels and disconnect one actuator at a time and possibly only have a couple bad but it is common to have more than on go bad. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Help with finding keyless door pad codes and resetting


Open the trunk and up under the package tray where rear speakers mount,on the passenger side you will see the module.It will be black and have 3 connectors to it.It will have a sticker on it with a 5 digit code.It will also have a sticker on one of the trunk hindges with this code if someone has not removed it.Here is how the system works:

Keyless Entry Keypad To unlock the driver front door (20124), and disarm the anti-theft alarm control (19A366) (if equipped):
  • Enter the permanent factory code.
  • Enter the owner's alternate code.
To unlock the passenger door(s), press the 3/4 button within five seconds of unlocking the driver front door or luggage compartment door (40110) . To unlock the luggage compartment door, press the 5/6 button within five seconds of unlocking the driver or passenger door(s). To turn on the interior lamps (13776) and light all illuminated components, lift either front door handle (22404) and press any button on the keyless entry keypad (14A626) . To lock all doors, press the 7/8 and 9/0 buttons at the same time. (It is not necessary to enter the key code first.) This will turn off courtesy lamps. To program a temporary code:
  • Enter permanent code.
  • Within five seconds of pressing last button of permanent code, press 1/2 button.
  • Enter any alternate five-digit code within five seconds of pressing 1/2 button.

Sounds like the keyless entry system is on the fritz. You will probably have to get a new brain for the keyless entry system.

Key Pad Entry does not work


does the key pad light when you press a button at night? If yes, the fuse is ok.
Do you have the plastic card with the permanent code in your owner manual packet? If yes, tryit.
report back.

Keyless Entry The keyless entry keypad is hardwired to the GEM. The GEM interprets the inputs from the keyless entry keypad and then controls the associated operation. The keyless entry keypad will be illuminated for five seconds when any button is pressed. Additionally, it will request the illuminated entry feature to turn the courtesy lamps on. If a lock all doors code is entered, the illumination will turn off, as well as request the illuminated entry feature to turn off the courtesy lamps. When pressed, the keyless entry keypad supplies the ground signal to the GEM or the GEM receives a signal from the keyless entry remote transmitter. Then the GEM outputs a ground signal to the appropriate lock or unlock relay which supplies the power to the actuator to lock or unlocks all doors, including the luggage compartment. The keyless entry remote transmitter also unlocks the liftgate or activates the panic alarm by sending a signal to the GEM.
